In Ferguson, Missouri, protests over a grand jury decision not to charge a white police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teen are taking place at Black Friday sales.
Walmart, Target, and other stores filled with post-Thanksgiving shoppers became brief "occupation" sites with dozens of demonstrators peacefully chanting "Hands up, don't shoot!", then dispersing peacefully when ordered by small groups of police.
More protests are planned for Friday in Ferguson and around the country in support of the radical notion that black lives matter, and that the case has been handled in a reckless and irresponsible manner by authorities.
